Obituary for Braxton Wade Owens-Norwood

Braxton Wade Owens-Norwood passed away tragically on Wednesday,
January 2, 2019 at the age of 31 years.
The son of Stephanie Owens-Hallford and LaRon Norwood, Braxton was born on October 23, 1987 in Cushing, Oklahoma and was raised and educated in Pryor, Tulsa and Muskogee, graduating from Muskogee High School. While in high school he excelled in football as a linebacker, giving him the opportunity to continue his education at Emporia State University in Kansas.
Braxton will always be remembered for lighting up the room with his smile. He was larger than life, and he never met a stranger. Friends became family and his family was his life. His greatest joy was being a father, he loved his baby boy, and his Momma. He will be remembered as the one who would pick you up when you were down; his hugs could heal any hurt. He had a heart of gold and would help anyone who needed it, and he will be truly missed by all who knew him.
Surviving include his son Trezden Briggs Sorenson; the love of his life Melody Sorenson; brother Haiden Hallford; his mother, Stephanie Owens-Hallford and her companion Michael and his daughter Makayla; Aunt Brooke Owens-Edge and her children Quentin, Atticus and Isabella; Grandma Vickie and Barney Porter; Great Aunt and Uncle Sherry and Gary Higgins; Great Uncle Johnny Johnson; Aunt Lindsey and Jay and son Porter Gillespie; his father LaRon Norwood and companion Jaymi Kelly; brother Taurie Reed; sister Tia Norwood; brother LaRon Norwood, Jr; sister Jayla Norwood; Aunt Nicole Mack Boyce; numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by Grandma Donna and Papa Johnson, and Papa Buddy Owens and his Aunt Lisa Norwood.
A celebration of his life will be held Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at the Avra Performing Arts Center, 1100 S.E. 9th Street, Pryor, Oklahoma, 74361.
